Mexico City: The fight began and Max Verstappen won the first round. Dutch Red Bull were tough, dominating Practice 2 of the Formula 1 Grand Prix in Mexico City, where Mexican Sergio “Checo” Perez was fourth fastest.
But Mercedes, which despite being more than four-tenths of the time from Verstappen’s 1:17.301, ranks second and third with Valtteri Bottas and Lewis Hamilton, respectively.
Checo Pérez completed the powerful car package in fourth place at 576 mph Max in a solid post, putting him third for a good part of the course, but with the racing pace simulation work which is very important for the Red Bull on Sunday.
The first day of training anticipates a very exciting battle between Mercedes and Red Bull, after Spaniard Carlos Sainz had the fifth best time, from Ferrari, one second and 17th from Verstappen…a world in terms of motorsports.
The track didn’t stop being slippery and sloppy because it had been inactive for two years, even the green (without the rubber that gives the car stability) and this made it difficult for everyone and was reflected in a slew of failed braking, confusion and disorientation. Nicholas Latifi takes place at the exit of Foro Sol, where Charles Leclerc and Chico Perez also suffered the same fate in P1.
